Abandoned Part 13

Abandoned part 12 Dawes

Pick me up.

Go on.

Pleeeassee…

I’ve been  here for a long time.

A very long time.

Too, too, LONG.

I don’t think she’s coming back.

In the heart of the Hayes (Cardiff), this poor ladies bike has been left for dead, picked at, scavenged and discarded. What a crying shame.

If you come back to your bike to find it decimated by detritivores, please think about passing any unwanted bits to local social enterprises such as The Cardiff Cycle workshopThe Bristol Bike Project,  ReCycling (London) or The Bike Station (Glasgow). This is part of an ongoing series to highlight cycle security, abandoned and vandalised bikes.

  1. Ah, the Old Dawes Kingpin (a guess but think I’m right), A sturdy British built bike, I doubt that you’ll see that many abandoned bikes in decades to come, the qualtiy, just not there in our throw away society today.

    A beacon on the Hayes? A saddle, a chain (or OIL!), a little TLC it can rise again.
